Christmas Tree Lane
In 1992, the nearby City of Ventura’s residents of Candy Cane Lane (Teloma Drive) decided to pass the torch of the well-known Ventura County tradition to Oxnard’s ‘F’ street. Donated decorations and lights, including no less than 3 scaled-down animated merry-go-rounds, were trucked to Oxnard and a new tradition began.
The event was organized and renamed Christmas Tree Lane by past neighboorhood Chair, ‘F’ Street resident Steve Buratti. The holiday spectacle grew in 2000 when local resident and neighborhood booster, Harris Berger, added another 5 blocks of adjacent ‘G’ Street into the display.
Estimates of the number of visitors vary from 20,000 to 40,000 during the 2 to 3 week run. All decorations and lighting are provided by individual homeowners and no City support is provided other than increased traffic control
